An Appeal By Business Men To Secre- 
tary Baker Brings Desired Results. 
Plants Operating With Full Force. 
Leading Citizens Say Place Is Safe 
But Employees Are Doubtful. - » 

Last week when it iu learned the 
tfaops would be withdrawn from East 
Stf. Louis July 25, to jp muttered Into 

the regular army, it caused quite 
deal of unrest among the whits ■> well 
. aa the Colored people of that city. As 
a remit quit* a Dumber of Colored peli- 
plf moved their t amiliea away in antici- 
pation of another outbreak. . 

The business men, besoming alarmed 
at the seriousness of the situation, im- 
mediately aent a committee to Spring- 
field 10 consult Ajt. General Diekcraon; 
also to Chicago to consult Major Gen. 
Barry, commanding the Central Army 
Division,, and to Secretary of war 
linker, requesting that the companies 
be permitted to remain. 

The members of. the committee wired 
the heads of the Anns Saturday that 
their request had been granted and to 
give every assurance to their Hegroani- 
ployeei that they would be amply pro- 
tected and slao give the mattei" the 
widest possible publicity.. 

This teemed to have as ■ tendency to 
quiet thing* down and the plant's have 
been working full 'force during' the past 


After making several trips to the 
Side and thoroughly investigating th? 
riot and tin- conditions that led up to 
it, an Argus reporter finds, according 
to' the best information' obtainable, 
that it wo* a "hired"' mob, backed by 
the Police and City Official*, and that 
the labor unions saw their plana to tie 
up the big commercial industries would 
be fulile unless they suceeded in dis 
pensing with the Negro labor. Then 
is also an idea prevalent among the 
manufacturers that German Influences 
have been conspicuous around 
plants contributing to the necessities of 

Bev. De Shields, pastor St. Paid Bap. 
list Church of E»jt St. L&uia, advised 
the pcople.'in a sermon last Sunday, to 
return to their homes as he had re- 
ceived every assurance thst they would 
be protected and those who had lost 
property, such as clothing and furni- 
ture, replenished free.- 

This opinion voices, the sentiment of 
all the leading citizens, but the. labor- 
ing classes are incline. I'm doubt, and 
are alow about returning. 



Moving pictures of the scene*. in. the 
Eut St. Louis Riot will he shown at 
the Booker Washington Theatre this 
Saturday night July 28. The picture* 
are authentic and are jvorth going mils* 
to see. They will be with other pictures 
and vaudeville Saturday night only. .

The activities of the St. Louis-Branch 
of the National Association for tb* Ad- 
vancements 'of Colored people are pro- 
ceeding with unabated vigor. It ii 
generally conceded that little- or noth 
ing is to be .expected from the Easl 
EH. Louis authorities in she way of 
booaflde prosecution* .of the rioters. 
Therefore the burden falls upon us.

Of course you should. The Negro has always .been «L 

the moat patriotic of American citizens. He ,is now ready j. 

tosacri&cehia life for his country.' It he is often denied T 

the privileges and the rights of an American citizen he is +- 

ready to stand up and fight for the only flag he ever knew. Hr 

He can be depended upon to join the ranks at any time. 4* 

But, before you enlist, make preparation for those you J. 

are leaving behind by joining l j. 

The Order of American Woodmen + 

The very best protection you can get. Your policy remains •»* 

good during your enlistment just the same as ever. If +■ 

called upon to cross the ocean and fight in the trenches of ■*. 

Europe, then the premiums will be kept uofor you by the ,►. 
Supreme Camp until you return home aooip. 

You may carry a certificate as hivnas $2,000' if you** 

like. It pays you| accident and sick benefits, and at 'your *r 

death a handsome certificate to your loved ones. HK 

' Don't hesitate but join now. Tomorrow may be too a 
late! See B. J. KNOX, J. J. DIXON and FELIX H. .BUT

The members of Pint Baptiat Church 
enjoyed the inspiring service* Init Sub- 
day. Bey. Maxwell delivered * v.-rj 
interesting sermon, theme "(tod'* < ' ■« 
Oreat Purpose." In the rally that* wal 
more than $200.00 reined; ami the r;,:y 
will continue through this Sunday. Tti 
paator urge* each in ember tg contribute 
a* liberally a* possible, owing* to the 
fMt that man}' necessary thing* jrp 
needed, W» are grid to report the gt d 
attendance or the Sunday school 
a T. P. U. Alt are weleomi. 


According to a recent investigator, it has been found that 
housing conditions among the colored people have become very 
math congested in this city. This report also shows that sanitary 
conditions are- bad and in many cases, houses that have been va- 
cant for years and are in a delapidated condition, have been rented 
to colored people, without repair. 

This of course, is due principally to the influx of Nejtroes from 
East St. Louis following the recent race riot. These houses were 
practically untenantable before the recent influx.but the renter had 
his choice of many and avoided the delapidated ones. 

We have a law in this city which deals with sanitation and 
health. In an address before a colored audience recently Dr. Stock- 
loff painted out the danger of unsanitary conditions. He said he 
favored a change for better, and now with the increasing popula- 
tion, the conditions demand immediate action on the part of the 
Health Department of this city. Evmry daya delay ia eottty. If 
specific cases are needed, .we would' suggest that a little work of a 
few inspectors will reveal startling conditions. It is really worth 


Following the resolution offered hy. Hon. L.C. Dyer of this city 
to make lynching.* Federal offense, a similar resolution has been 
introduced by the Hon. Mr. Dallinger. of Massachusetts. 

We are pleased to know that at least some one has been found 
v (or some one haa found themselves')' with the courage of their con* 
' victions. to offer such resolutio»s in the councils of the nation. >■ 
- The recent outrages committed against colored citizens of the 
United States, at East St. Louis, Illinois, have set the thoughtful to 
thinking. Crimes were committed that the average mind though 1 
impossible. It is now- clearly seen what may happen at any time or 
at any place in the -United- States-, unless something is done. Local 
officers have always found themselves either unable or unwilling to 
protect lives and property when the mob spirit Was once started. 
The constitution of the United States has in all-such cases been fla- 
grantly, violated.- It is the duty of the (Jove.rnment to step irj'with 
its unlimited power and put a stop to such practices. . 

Mr. Dyer and Mr. Ballinger are perfectly right when they say 
that Article XIV of the Amendments".* the Federal Constitution 
provides' that "No State shall deprive any person of life, liberty or 
property without due process of law, nor deW-to any person within 
its jurisdiction the equal protection of the lawSr* The law covers 
the case fully but the enforcement of the law is weak. What is 
needed how is the passage of the "Dyer Bill" that will in the future 
be able to fix the responsibility. 

Public sentiment in favor of law and order should be so over- 
whelmingly for the . resolution that_ it should pass with very little 
opposition. . " '"- 

Let every colored . man, woman and child lend their influence, 
by writing their representative in Congress and Senate urging thei? 
support of the resolution. This is the one step in the right direc - 
tion. A ray of light is seen in it. Let all support ft. 3 : 

_■-.'■ EAST ST. lows; 

The business men and the business interest at East St. Louis 
seem to have awakened to the reaJ situation in that city, and now are 
found very busy putting forth extraordinary effort? to pre-vent an- 
other outbreak of lawlessness there. They have found by investi- 
gation that a gigantic 'scheme was underway to tie up all the in- 
dustries of the city in the near future. The promoters' realized £he 
nocessity of an almost unanimous ob-operation of employees in or- 
der to jnake the scheme' a success, but found too much loyalty in 
the Negro to make him a part of the^plot; therefore, they, decided 
to drive the Negro out. The business' 'intonate' will do well to of - 
\ fer e\ery possible protection to those who are most faithful in 
every emergency, 'ere they find their hands tied. 

, Watch your step. 

Every thought or act may mean a atop in one way or the other. 
We should watch our jUpa at all times, w nether riding on street 
cars, standing on the street corners, ,hanging out our windows half 
dressed in- tbe evenings, or whether we are coming in our front 
door with the ''can." Our steps ^leaves their foot-printa, especi- 
ally along the main thoroughfares and, in public places. WATCH

peal not to the uncultured but the edu- 
cated Negroes, . those whom we have 
placed in front as leaders. 

We have about reached the crisis 
in our humiliated career. It is now 
time to bury all malice, envy and evil 
thoughts against eseh other and band 
together for our mutual .protection. 
Cut you show me where a dollar spent 
with a white man must eircujate your 
way! Ho. does not have to eome to 
your saloon, buy your groceries, eat in 
yonr restaurants, patronise your under- 
takers or professional .men. He visit 
your churches only when he is rjnnin,

Tha popular view 
1*. that we have 
no atheist- 
a tuong na la these 
days, bat mm la; 
true only from 
the standpoint of 
theory. Practical 
', however, 
a b o u d d on all 
•Idea, and' few

were a' Gpd to 
wbom tin/ are 
accountable. Socb 
Ignorina; of God 
men ns ruin to the Individual and to 
the community. Amidst tbe hcruniti- 
latlon of the. ordinary care* of life' and 
lis pleasures and the frequent extra- 
ordinary calls made on man aa a mem- 
ber of society, be often becomes ao 
overwhelmed that he doe* not appear 
to have time to get Ood. In hi* thoughts, 
and It wins m if man everywhere In 
there awful time* 1* thus troubled and 
deserves our kindest consideration. 
Why Think of "Osd* 
The Drat suggestion Is that Ood la 
what he is. in the (eit he- 1* represent- 
ed ea having purpose and that It fa 1m- 
poaalble to change that purpose : every- 
thing he- purpose* Roes through to the' 
end. Ood himself claims that hia-coun- 
ael shall stand, aod he Is the Brat and 
he Is the last, and beside* him there l* 
no other God. - He **ka of men that 
they be still and know that he is God, 
and he. win-be exalted In the earth. He 
lakes up the .laland* of the sea as 
a very tittle thing; AH nation* before 
' him are as nothing and vanity, and he 
altteth upon the circle of tbe earth 
and tbe Inhabitant* thereof are aa 
grasshopper*. Paul chlded the 1 Intel- 
lectual Athenian* because tbey seemed 
to .think, Ood like unto gold and silver, 
and Job aald In ancient time*, th*t a 
man 1* foolish who strive* against Ood. 
for he doe* not give account of any of- 
his matt era. and again aod again doe* 
the Bible represent God In bla.lnllnile 
creative power a* speaking, and ma- 
terial .things, worlds, and Dulvcrsc* 
even spring into being.. 

The proper thought of Ood will take 
away the despair that often come* to 
men a* they contemplate the world 
about them. -Never in the history of 
the race were /the affair* of men' In 
■neb ruin a* today. .The world seem*, 
aflame. Material thing* seem to be 
dissolving and higher thing* held dear 
to" nan seem to be going down In 
universal crash. Millions of. men are 
dying or are mangled In battle, fun 
lion* of women- and children are Stirl- 
ing, and there 1* chaos everywhere, bnt 
over It all God rale*. In the dark mo- 
menta when President Lincoln wa* 
stricken down by the nwaisln's ballet, 
Conjtrnwman Csrflelrt, afterward* pres- 
ident, aaid In New Tort. "Cloud* and 
darkness sre round about hits, rigbt- 
eousne** and Judgment ire the habita- 
tion of hla throne." Ood was not asleep 
when the bullet of Booth crashed'lptP 
the braia of tbe president. God 1 * 
throne in the midst of the cloud* and 
tbe darkness did not even feel a 

Oed In National Affair*. 
- Furthermore. G<~l Is In sll the affair* 
of life, whether man regognlxes hi* 
presence or not. When Victor Hugo in 
"Le* UlseraHM" wa* seeking *n ex- 
planation of the battle of Waterloo-be

whUa ha I* near..-!**. BA 

The Bible la throughout a forward 
looking book. No matter bow, dark 
the light it look* forward to the dawn 
of a new and belter day. Whenever 
written, the prophet looks- forward to- 
ward tha end of the Babylonian exile. 
Isaiah died about 1*2 year* before that 
event That aceae la laid In Baby- 
lonia, laaiah prophesied in Jerusalem. 
I. The Invitation,' (vr. 1-8) In or- 
der to understand tho fullness and 
blessedness of tbbi Invitation, we 
should read In lie connection chapter* 
S3 and 04. In chapter 53 we hove a 
prophecy and vision of the Messiah, 
making his atonement ., for jins, 
"wounded for our transgressions." 
Again we hnve In this connection * 
picture of the Messiah ns our -leader 
and S«.vlof. In chapter « we have 
the Invitation and joyous welcome to 
the beeVlful city which he la estab- 
lishing for us. 

(I) Who la Invited? The word "Ho" 
la perhaps an abbreviation of the 
word "Hold." used to excite attention. 
Thli Invitation- is extended to every 
one':* (a) the "thirsty,'* to those who 
are needy ■ (b) the poor and the rich ; 
those ''without money," and the supply 
1* abundant, even a* the water. Every 
one I* invited without limitation or 
distinction. The grentness of a man's 
spirit Is measured by tbe numbers of 
hi* desires and thirst*, by their qur.l- 
ltles and by his capacities or the In- 
tensity of his thirst. Those Invited 
were, to have' "wine," a luxury, and 
?railk." n- staple necessity, without 
money and without price> The cur- 
rency of 'tbe kingdom of Heaven I 
grace (v. 1). 

(I) .Who Will Coma? (v: 3). Only 
those who ore listening and who are 
attentive. Many fail of eternal life 
because they do not pay attention to 
the claim* of religion "Come unto 
me." (Mntt. ■ 11 :28). We go to Ood 
for novation and help, .and we And 
life. Ufe is more than Mere exist- 
en«. It I* ihe- natural, /banoontoas, 
Joyou* activity -of 'every:' P*rt' 6f\onr

I*. "on everlasting covenant" Liter- 
ally, an agreement with promises 
which can never be broken, namely. 
"the" sure mercies of David." (See jl 
Sa.nL 12:E0MCor. 17:7-27; Ps. 88:1-1: 
also Luke 20:41, M). We are bought 
but w'e did not pay tbe price. The 
mercies of David are the antitype of 
our Savior; tbe mercy of grace.. True 
aatlxfactloa 1* in It* right order, (See 
vv. 2, 3). CbrUt la a faithful witness,
